When my boiler pilot light starts up it kicks out straight way and knocks off the boiler seems to have no faulty parts


Pilot lights have a metal detector just above them, which heats up when the flame is on. If that is not switching fully, Boiler will think no flame and close down. It is a safety feature, but if faulty will stop boiler firing, might just need adjusting, but may also need to be replaced, not really recommended as a diy job

How do i reignite a worcester 24i combi boiler ?


I looked up this unit for you and found out it is a hot water system. She needs to get to the main gas valve to light the pilot. This unit has what is called a thermocouple on it that keeps the pilot on, even when the boiler shuts down. Its just a matter of lighting the pilot light. There should be a metal plate with the directions on it at the gas valve to lite it. You will have a knob, more then likely red or black in color on top of the valve. It will say on, off, and pilot. It should be in the on position now. Turn it to pilot. Have some matches with you and a flashlight if you can. You will need to look back into the burner area to where your pilot light will be. The thermocouple is a copper colored tubing that runs right back to the pilot, as it has to get hot from the pilot flame to work. To start, depending on how far back you have to reach with the match, you may need to use a piece of solid cardboard rolled up, a small piece to light it and reach in. Turn the knob to pilot. Now, push down on the knob and hold it down. This lets gas get back to the pilot, so you must keep it down and light it at the same time. Once it is lite, you have to hold it down for at least a minute. Slowly release it, very slow. The flame should then stay on. Once it is on, turn the gas knob to on. With the thermostat set to come on, it will fire up and heat the water. If the pilot will not stay lite after you hold it down for 1 minute, and keeps going out, the thermocouple will need to be replaced. It is the copper line that screws into the gas valve and goes back to the pilot. You can get them at any hardware store for around $6.00. Maybe you can help her install it. It is very simple to do. I believe the pilot just blew out and she will need to light it. Just follow what I have told you, and she will get it lite. Good Luck to you.

I have a Rheem 41v50n (about 10 years old)and the pilot light went out and will not re-light. Gas comes out when I hold the botton down, but it goes out again when I let go. Any simple fixes, or should I...


The thermocouple just needs to be replaced. Can be bought for around ten bucks at many hardware store or heating supply house. Simple installation. Takes about ten minutes to install. They come in different lentghs, see how long yours is before you buy, so you get the right one.

Very Hot water coming out of overflow pipe


Is your boiler heating your domestic hot water if so i would turn water off to water maker and see if your boiler pressure stays down below 20 psi. If so water maker is bad. The other thing that could cause this problem would be the boiler pump is out.

Boiler kept shutting down.Re-starts but drops not keeping pilot.


there ic a low water cut-off on all boilers, also a over pressure switch that can shut down the unit. You should really call a service company out to look at the problem due to the potential of a serius problem with thee unit and see whats is the problem with the unit. Boilers can explode and do allot of damage to a person and property if this happ[ens. GOod Luck

Water heater pilot light


it also sounds as though the pilot injector could be blocked so when the boiler comes on it extinguishes the pilot & then when the burner goes off boiler shuts down, or also the pilot rate maynot be set right, so when the main burner kicks in it robs the pilot of the gas it requires.
It could be that, or there is lack of ventilation for the boiler, so you get flame lift off when the boiler fires?
